3. Pride: The Sin of Thingol

What sin is this, husband? You think this mortal less than you. Was I not a greater thing than thee once, yet I put away my pride to dwell here.

His heart is true, yet you would send him to his death to save our daughter. This is a greater sin than you know.

Their love is a greater even than the pride of the Eldar. It will not be vanquished.

Forget your arrogance, Grey Lord, and let them be. You will be no less for it, and she will be the stronger.

He shall have no part of her.
